After reading Part 1 of the story, I really liked how Flaubert started off describing Charles and his life, instead of jumping right to Emma. At first I was confused because he didn’t say anything about her, but then right after the wedding it’s kind of like she jumps in as the narrator. Usually writers describe the main character, but he instead talks about her future husband first. I find Emma to be ungrateful and bossy, but she still comes across as a hopeless romantic. Charles is very lazy and dull, and it seems as if he sees Emma as more of an object than as a person.

Allan Ball leaves it completely up to the audience how they want to interpret it, but he also makes sure that once you have seen it, you will not be able to forget it. The movie provokes you to think about your own life and forces you to ask yourself, if you are truly happy with what you do. One of the more apparent themes in this movie is about the American Dream and its promises of happiness connected to materialistic wealth. However, the movie also draws attention to other themes, such as appearance versus reality, denial and repression, control versus chaos, loneliness versus feeling connected and beauty (subjective and objective). Each character in the movie represents one or more of these themes, which will become apparent below.
The perceptions of belonging and not belonging can be influenced by connections to relationships. This idea is illustrated In the Film Strictly Ballroom by Baz Luhmann and the song She’s leaving home by the Beatles. Making a choice not to belong will take courage to stand up to the majority group. The character of scott stands up to the dancing world after becoming boxed when in a competition by two other dancers by dancing his own moves to escape from being boxed in. This shows the true identity of who Scott truly wishes to be and how he wants to break outside the mould of what his Mother and the Ballroom dancing community thing he should be.
Additionally, Keller prophetically predicts Paul’s failure on the concert circuit in Europe, justifying his critique by remarking: “better a small hurt now, than a wasted life”. Thus, despite his best efforts, Paul dream of becoming a virtuoso eludes him as the Maestro expects: “[you are my] best student yes, one in a thousand. But a concert pianist is one in a million”. The hope that Paul’s parents imbue within him is thus contrasted and contradicted with Keller’s lack of faith in his student, and the eventual despondency that Paul experiences through a string of competition
When he “trie[d] to yell” it frightened the humans (Gardner 27).Although he can communicate with the reader, he cannot with humans. This causes the reader to take pity on Grendel because they pity his inability to communicate which can only be realized if the story is told in first person. However, since the story is told by Grendel himself, the reader realizes that he lacks the art that the humans are able to accept. A central topic around which the book centers is art. It is presented from both a negative and positive perspective.
One of the biggest alterations to the movie was the relationship between Holly and the narrator or ‘Fred’ as Holly preferred to call him. In the novella, ‘Fred’ forms a tentative friendship with Holly and is intrigued by her life. There is no romance between these two; it’s even rumored that the narrator might possibly be gay. In the movie however, Fred becomes quickly enamored with her while he watches her chase after wealthy men and even get in trouble with the law. In both versions, she remains a mystery.
